Amazing night
Rating: 5/5

The evening was perfect in every way - it started with a glass of champagne and a canape and a chance to look around the farm and then we all sat down and the chef explained what was being served and I have to say he was very passionate about the place which was lovely to hear. The food that was served was amazing and the lamb we had was perfect and very flavoursome. The extras you receive I think make it very good value for money - as well as the main courses you had champagne, canape's, cheese and biscuits, fresh bread, coffee and the most divine fudge as well as water on the tables and the drink they sold was good value too! I sat by the door and even though I feel the cold it was a nice relief when the door was opened as it gave a little bit of fresh air and was by no means cold even though it wasnt really warm weather at all. I would say to eat here and to give The Wild Garlic a try as both are extremely good venues.

Great Anniversary Evening
Rating: 5/5

The staff, the weather and the location made this a night that we very much enjoyed and will remember for a long time. From the moment we arrived in our taxi at the car park we were made to feel welcome and the potential awkwardness of being together with many people we did not know was skillfully nullified by the welcome we received. Drinks and canapes were very well received and a chance to nosy about the farm before dinner was also good fun. The chef gave an enthusiastic description of the food and even though all of the bits he described failed to be served (crispy potato and confit pigeon legs) the food was well presented and superbly served by a team working efficiently and very hard. At the end of the night we felt full and relaxed with a delicious bottle of Penzance Elderflower sparkler and some cider consumed at a reasonable price too. I would recommend the experience and you may get to meet someone interesting on your table too.
